From the name synonymous with the bodybuilding business, Weider has creates the Weider Core 100-Pound Adjustable Dumbells Select-A-Weight Set. A very viable alternative out of the range of adjustable dumbbells for sale, those looking to save space and add a full range of weights to their home workout room should consider these as a good option.
Weider Core 100-Pound Adjustable Select-A-Weight Adjustable Dumbbell set are from the name that is synonymous with bodybuilding. Think Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joe Weider has some responsibility for bringing him and the bodybuilding world to the masses. As such, it is no doubt as to why his name is one a number of high quality fitness products. This particular set of adjustable dumbbells goes up to 50-pounds; plenty for most people looking for a home set of dumbbells. The actual mechanism – called Select-A-Weight – increases the weight of each dumbbell in 5 pound increments starting at 10 pounds. This is similar to the Bow flex Select Tech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells which we reviewed earlier. Both work in a similar fashion, with the Bow Flex system working slightly better. The best part of this product is that it comes with a waist-height stand so that the weights can be lifted and lowered from an easier height than the floor. Compared to some of the Bow flex sets this is a key benefit.

The reviews on these adjustable dumbbells for sale are positive. However, with only four reviews as of this writing the sample size is limited. Each of those reviews are 5-star which is a good indication that Weider must have a pretty good product here. We would definitely like to see more reviews to get a better sense of the product. Their design and quality build were referenced by the reviewers as was the fact that it included a waist height stand. However, within the positive reviews there were some things mentioned for users to watch out for. First, was that these weights should not be dropped or thrown as the adjustment mechanism can become damaged rendering the weights unusable.
The product is Recommended by Adjustable Dumbbells Review. The main reason for the Weider Core 100-Pound Adjustable Select-A-Weight Set not being Highly Recommended is that these weights start at 10 pounds, which for some may be too heavy for some exercises (such as lateral raises). The best price we could find for this product was on Amazon.com with a current price of $339 (includes free shipping – unheard of for shipping weights!).
